When I tried to compile gimp 2.8.10 in April64
I got the following error
Code:
gimpfont.c:30:31: fatal error: freetype/tttables.h: No such file or directory


When I checked where this file should be located (in Precise Puppy)
It is located in /usr/include/freetype2/freetype/ttables.h (see image)



April64 apparently locates it one level up which causes the error.

______________________________________________________


I looked through my recent wary64 and april64 and april builds, have /usr/include/freetype2/ttables.h, don't have that "freetype" directory.

I was able to compile gimp in T2 and in a april64, don't recall any difficulty.

Anyway, try:

# ln -s freetype2 /usr/include/freetype

I looked up the error on the Gimp forum and it's caused by an improper
version of python.

I will compile python properly on this distro and that should fix the problem.

PostPosted: Thu 19 Feb 2015, 21:06    Post subject: Intel problem April i686  

I have a 'new-to-me' 'Silver' Optima 4:3 LCD Monitor that can give me up to 1280x1024@75hz (cost all of $15.00 at a local country market), great for the eyes. The box it's connected too is an old Acer V58145 (v5800 WGV) that's been good with Puppy since I got it. It's video is an Intel 82945G/GZ on-board chipset. I nowadays use it as my main 32bit development box.

I've just realized that with April's i686 6.9.4 the screen is only running at 1024x768@60hz (I checked it with the inscreen display);
So I dropped out of X and ran the wizard and it allowed me to set it at 1280x1024 and 75hz;
So I exited and started xwin;
It's back displaying at 1024x768 and 60hz;
Used the menu to access xorg.conf and that says I should be running 1280x1024@75.02hz.;
I restarted X and no change;
And any settings greater than 1024x768@60hz are set in the xorg.conf ok, but don't happen on starting xwin or even if I do a full reboot.

But starting it with quirky 6.1.4 it runs all the matrix's up to 1280x1024@75hz, with no problems.

Any sugestions where to go from here?

I think that I compiled gimp without python support, as Quirky (and Puppy) only has python if the devx is loaded.

Ah, Fatdog64 version 700 has just been released:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=97855

I guess I had better think about Quirky/April64 7.0-final also.

Got a few things to fix and test. I am thinking can do it about Thursday this week.

All of this Wary/April naming will upset Ladislav at distrowatch.com. I might just announce it as Quirky64 and Quirky (32-bit) version 7.0.

...based upon April, will dump the Wary builds.

Wary is just a cut-down April, without all the llvm, mesa, xorg drivers, just has a very small selection of xorg drivers.

Currently trying Wary 64 CD.

Really good, cpu blowfish as fast as fatdog 64.

Just missing the firewall on/ off indicator (as with FD64)
and Xine comes up when clicking on DVD drive, a bit of messing around with the drive mounter and you can finally see contents of CD/dvd.

Is there a slackware(14?) repo or other that progs can be tried out, or does it all have to come from the April/Wary 64 repo?

One used to be able to dip into Ubuntu or Slackware packages?
Because pets don't seem to work anymore.

Maybe Mesa could be available as a package?

Good thing is it is easy to navigate and stable.

Subject description: April64 and UEFI
 

I have been running Fatdog64 for awhile now, but, decided to give April64 a try.

The Compaq CQ58, which I use, is a UEFI machine. I do not have Window$ l on it. The suggested method of using April64 can not be used.

However, the Fatdog64 changes using REFI and the new Grub do work. I have installed April64 and sort of having it running on the CQ58. Here is the Grub entry that I use:
Code:
menuentry "Quirky 7.0.3 Test on sda3" {
   search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 07fdd8a9-efed-4de1-8b7c-#####
# above line searches for UUID and sets root to device with UUID
# savefile=direct:device:sda3:/fd64save.ext4 normal save file for fd64
# savefile=direct:device:sda3:/fd64save normal save directory only with 620
#
   linux /vmlinuz
   initrd /initrd
}


I did have to change the name of initrd.d to just initrd. April64 does boot and runs. However, it thinks it was started from a CDROM and runs in RAM. I have tried searching for the proper boot options, but it a case of too many items What are the proper boot options for April64? Thank you in advance for either the information or a web site where I can find the options. I hope this will be a help if I get it all working correctly.

You have posted to an old "retired" thread.

@Barry
In a post here, I stated:
1. my boot flash drive has several puppies from which I can boot
2. It is my understanding that Quirky Unicorn and Quirky April allow for only a single quirky installation on a flash drive regardless of size.
3. Ipso facto, "quirkies" are not for everyone; multiple puppies are not accommodated on quirky installs.

I thought after posting in that thread, that I should really post here for Barry to confirm.

Hi BKJ,

Your No (3) is incorrect (I use merely three flash stick partitions - two for Quirky unicorn and one with Precise 5.6). You might seek better advice from gcmartin: I can post links or screen shots suggesting you consult the paramids or approach a local university.

My regards

Then I stand corrected. The intent of the post was for someone to correct me if my perception was wrong. Thanks.

Since you replied, since it is you and not gcmartin that is advising, I see no reason to seek advice from gcmartin. A more fulsome post from you would help. Wink
